This is a must see / visit. The guys here are making a difference in the rehab and treating of injured koalas. Aside from the koalas been fascinating to watch and absolutely adorable, a visit here and donation (by way of admission fee) is helping to care for them and if possible get them back in the wild.

The team at the Koala hospital seemed to really know their stuff. It was interesting to hear about all the work they have done and continue to do, and the kids loved it as much as we did. Well worth a visit if you're in Port Macquarie.

As a trainee vet I loved visiting the koala hospital, it's was great hearing the excellent work theyre doing to help injured/ill koalas. I even adopted a koala at the end of the day. The koalas are so cute too!

The koala areas were personal and touching stories of each koala was displayed. The mission of the hospital is very worthwhile. The shaded walk and proximity to the historical Roto house made the trip especially enjoyable.

This is a small outdoor facility that provides care for koalas who have been injured by brush fires, cars, or dogs. You can read their stories, which are heartbreaking. I am thankful for the dedicated people who are giving their time and energy to help nurse these creatures back to health.

I went to the 3 pm feeding with a guided tour. I was surprised how busy the tour was. They broke us into two groups. If you go at feeding time you will have a better opportunity for photos and seeing the koalas as at other times they are often sleeping and may be facing away. Our tour guide was... More
